Morgan Meneses-Sheets Executive director of Equality Maryland has made it clear this morning. Equality Maryland despite the objections of the transgender community will press forward of HB235.
Morgan Meneses-Sheets sheets said about the prospects of obtaining civil unions this legislative year Gay life “It’s marriage or bust. We are not going to accept anything less.”
Apparently Martin Luther King JR’s words only apply to Gay marriage equality. Morgan Meneses-Sheets is using the entire weight of Equality Marryland in calling and emailing the legislature supporting HB235 which does not include public accommodations.
The panel will ecasted live tonite 7 EST/6 CST.

My question goes to Morgan Meneses-Sheets sheets,
Why has Equality Maryland banned Danna LaRoccaa a well spoken transgender journalist from your facebook page. Why has Equality Maryland has continually removed links and comments from transgender people who oppose HB235 as written without public accommodations.
Equality Maryland is censoring the transgender community and attempting to force this bill on transgender people by using the full membership of Equality Maryland to lobby the legislature for HB235.
It is common sense that a bill framed as a “equality” bill without public accommodations is useless. The transgender community is asking you to stop censoring the conversation and let free speech be the bell weather of full transgender equality.
What will it take for you to let this bill die? The transgender community does not want it.
